“I think that a career in research science is the best career one could possibly have. How many careers can you have that you actually think up an idea that someone has never investigated in the entire world, ever? Obviously you need to read the literature to see what's been done before, but you can come up with an idea that can be tested that no one else has ever looked at. How much cooler of a job can you get?”
